Artist Talk / Guided Tour: Nick Oberthaler, »Changes«
Nick Oberthaler talks to artist colleagues
Nick Oberthaler’s works query the difference and transformability of picture elements in various contexts: they explore the significance of the picture(d), the relationship of presentation and representation in painting. Oberthaler’s interest in the painting ground and surface is reflected in a method that integrates the surrounding space. His confrontation with yearnings, wishes and desires is re-contextualized by fragmentation and re-combination of aesthetic elements. In the exhibition »Changes,« which is based on his own concept, he invites fellow artists to a discussion on the relationship between painterly practice and performance, music and installation.
